we finally caved into the kids begging for years for a pet.
although he is not a dog ( which the kids wanted most ) he is the newest member
to the Griffin clan!!
we just got him today and we all love him to pieces already...
he's very docile and cuddly and cute as can be!
Oliver is 10 weeks old.
...at Petland picking Oliver out and getting him ready to bring to his new home...
( Oliver is going to be very well loved! )
( and yes, his little bunny nose goes a mile a minute!!!)
April 25 was mike's birthday and we had a little get together on the 24th to celebrate!
...i made him cupcakes this year instead of a cake, which i think he felt a little ripped off because last year was a DQ ice cream cake....haha!
makin' up some banana martini's!!
..this is my totally cute niece airiel, with her totally cute boyfriend skyler, playing on courtney's totally cute PINK guitar!!!!
WAKE UP DAVE!!!!
...mike and john BEFORE the chair incident....
i taught a sketches class monday night and here's the layouts we based the sketces on.
for the first one, we punched out butterflies out of corrugated COFFEE CUP COZIES from Mac's ( heehee ) and then glued pearls ( or rhinestones ) down the body of the butterfly!!
you can use pop dots to lift them off the page and also bend the wings up to give them a 3D look!
( you've seen this one recently )
we rubber stamped all the circles onto a blank sheet of Bazzill Kraft cardstock to create our own 'patterned paper' and then punced small circles out of some scrap papers to embellish with. the title is painted using foam alpha letters and acrylic paints. then we sewed on a few buttons, added a journaling card and voila!!!
